The collaborate remix project by the elite crew Pacman (a.k.a. Octopus Inc) and Colongib of an attention label Kracfive. The tracks selection from the long unavailable Pacman & Colongib CD (released by the 1st work of Kracfive in 1998), the best tracks from their individual debut albums (also from 1998 and long unavailable), and an excellent unreleased collaborative effort called "Farm Plant". The sound in early works of them consists of the simple and complex bright melodies and breakbeats which are associated with BGM of an initial video game! Artist who has developed into an unprecedented new electronic breakbeats style and who continues to be expected!
Music by Noah Sasso / Christopher Graves 1995-1998.
Artwork by Noah and Haruo.
Originally released by Obtain Freedom.
Noah Sasso (Pacman, Octopus inc) was born & raised on the east coast of the us. In between psychedelic public high school experiences, he managed to record a series of four Pacman cassettes, parts of which were used to compile the 2x CD release, Pacman - This is the End. Currently, Noah is living in southern California & northern New Jersey, and has recorded two albums for Kracfive as Octopus Inc - 1999's Mere Things & Mindless Creatures and, to be released in summer of 2001, Fluid Freedom. Octopus music was praised recently in the LA Times as 'kinetic' and 'ebullient'. (ebullience is good)
Chris Graves (Colongib, Christopho Graves) was born and raised in backwoods New England coast (USA). While growing up he was surrounded by robots, which influenced his music in strange and unpredictable ways. Despite being influenced to do general stuff by the mother, he had to start having sonic adventures. He started K5 with Joe and Noah out of some weird masochistic urge to spend vast $ and time. And it worked! Really, the old imagination vs suck; and imagination is coming out on top. I'm going to go lift some weights. what?!
